Hey everyone, I just moved to Oakville, Ontario from Tokyo Japan.

I was wondering if there's a store around here that sells Suntory Oolong tea (bottled).

    Possibly T&T or PAT in Mississauga?

      There's a Japanese mall called J-Town on Steeles Avenue in Markham.

        This is one of the more easily found teas, the version you find will often be the one produced for the Chinese market. Slightly different packaging but it is made by Suntory, made in China.

        There're also the smaller bottle black oolong which are made in Japan, obviously these ones cost more, over $2.

        Most of the uptown Chinese supermarkets will have it (T&T, Foody, etc) at around $1.25 a bottle. Closest for you might be Mississauga T&T. You'll also find Kirin and Itoen teas there.

          There is also Oceans supermarket in Mississauga. Pretty sure they have Suntory Tea, just not sure if they have this exact one. Unfortunately I don't know of any asian shops in Oakville

              It may not taste the same even when you do find them. The Lemon afternoon tea tasted the same as from Japan but the Royal Milk Tea felt diluted when purchased here in Canada. I'm not sure if they bottle it here or if something is lost during transport. Oolong tea should be the same but I was shocked when I bought the drinks here.

              Another place you can try if they are in your area is Foody Mart. There is on at 521 Hwy 7, UNIONVILLE. My geography is very poor so I don't know if that is close to you. Foody Mart also sells Qoo drinks also if you are interested.

              Here is what the bottle looks like:
